A set of four good quality late Victorian, silver topped, cut glass dressing table bottles, assayed for London 1899, comprising a hat pin jar, a powder or cotton wool pot, a tall eau de cologne bottle and a smaller scent bottle.
The glass is cut with simple, elegant vertical slices and the smaller perfume bottle has facet cut shoulders. The silver tops are decorated with acanthus leaf and wreath and dot engraving. None are monogrammed. Both the perfume bottles have screw tops with the original cork linings. The other two pots have push on lids.
The lids of the pin pot and the powder pot carry the maker's mark for Wolfsky and Co Ltd,, well known London Dressing Case makers, and the manufacturers of the case from which these bottles originate. The two screw top scent bottles carry the maker's mark for Charles James Fox of London. As the decoration is identical on all four lids and they are clearly an original set, the marks suggest that Wolfsky & Co bought in the screw tops from Charles Fox & Co Ltd.
If you have any questions about these lovely bottles please don't hesitate to ask.
